The adaptive apartment: a reconfigurable perimeter of a micro-community that evolves over time
The domestic space today is comparable to a micro-community that is no longer necessarily identified only by the nuclear family. From the single person, to the couple, to the family with children, to senior couples or assisted seniors, the domestic space must expand, reduce, reconfigure, include a “augmented family” and be in constant evolution.
Just a 5-minute walk from the Villa San Giovanni subway station in Milan, the Via Soffredini 75 project represents the prototype of the adaptive home. On a seven-story building with sixteen apartments, the living space is composed of an internal living room – kitchen and living room – a guest bathroom, a large habitable terrace, and a comfortable bedroom with a master bathroom and amenities.
No more moving!
The adaptive apartment exceeds the rigidity of fixed apartment cuts (two-room, three-room, four-room, etc.), allowing the family to not be forced to move when an increase in living space is needed.
